  • It's Time For The United States to Divorce Before Things Get Dangerous

    The Federalist ^ | April 10, 2018 | Jesse Kelly
    The GOP has many problems, but the Democratic Party has turned into something completely un-American. The United States was founded on two things: Judeo-Christian values and a limited federal government. The entire platform of modern Democrats stands completely opposite both of those. This is the party that booed the very mention of the word “God” at their 2016 convention. This is the party whose candidates openly “joke” about killing anyone who won’t turn in his weapons. Their senators joke on national TV about killing the U.S. president, and the host responds by clapping like a seal. The 1960s counter-culture liberal...

    Two senior House Republicans are accusing the Justice Department of being behind “anonymous attacks” in the press targeting a House Intelligence Committee GOP staffer who helped author the committee’s well-publicized memo alleging surveillance abuse by the FBI and DOJ during the 2016 election. The same House staffer is also a driving force behind the latest Russia records standoff. "I would have a lot more respect for DOJ or House committee Democrats if they would take out their frustrations on members of Congress, and leave staffers alone,” South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, told...
  • School-walkout unity also lays bare division among students

    As she addressed the crowd during the walkout at her Idaho high school, Kylee Denny faced heckles and name-calling from a group of students carrying American flags, she said. The counterprotesters included many familiar faces, including her boyfriend's stepbrother. To avoid making a difficult situation worse, Kylee's boyfriend stayed in class during the rally at Hillcrest High School in Idaho Falls, which was part of Wednesday's national school walkout. "I'm dating his stepbrother, which is really incredibly awkward and it's very tense because he was being so hostile about losing respect for me because I was walking out," said Kylee,...
  • (IS DACA) Donald Trump’s “Read My Lips” Moment? (YES)

    01/10/2018 11:53:22 AM PST · by Cubs Fan · 154 replies
    The Democrats well remember their success in baiting George H. Bush into alienating his base by persuading him to renege on his campaign pledge: “Read my lips … no new taxes!” Well the new taxes came, the already suspicious base could no longer rationalize to themselves that Bush would continue the Reagan legacy, and Bush was a single-term President. His successor being none other than Bill Clinton. If granting amnesty to illegal aliens — who are trespassers in this land — does not equate to a “read my lips” level betrayal, it’s hard to imagine what would be. The White...

    Michael Morell, former acting head of the CIA, became a political animal in August 2016 when he endorsed Hillary Clinton for president. This month, he came to grips with the consequences of that decision -- that it might have played into President Donald Trump's distrust of the intelligence community. It is possible, he told the Review Journal, "I played a role in that." Back to last year. In an opinion piece in The New York Times, Morell not only endorsed Clinton, he also warned that, to the eyes of an intelligence analyst, candidate Trump could be considered "an unwitting agent...

    The long-awaited Ways and Means version of the Republican tax-reform bill has finally emerged from its back-room efforts to stave off any defections in the House and Senate. House GOP leadership launched the bill with a cheery press conference, with members clearly relieved at having a bill to move forward. It includes parts of several trial balloons, and excludes one in particular that backfired badly enough to earn a rebuke from Donald Trump.CNBC breaks down the changes: As part of that reform package, the GOP aims to permanently lower the corporate tax rate to 20 percent.The House bill would...

    Lebron James was downright giddy over the demonstrations that swept across the NFL last Sunday, when scores of players “took a knee” to protest the racial injustice that allegedly pervades the nation which they very clearly hold in low regard. “I salute the NFL, the players, the coaches, the owners and the fans … it was unbelievable,” the $400 million hoopster said about a majority-black league whose players earn, on average, $1.9 million per sixteen-week season — more than the average full-time American worker earns in an entire lifetime. “There was solidarity,” he raved. “There was no divide, no...

    Is fighting sprawl still a goal for those who decide the fate of transportation funding at the federal, state and local levels?Transportation planning is deeply connected to economic development, but there in any agreement about transportation funding among government leaders often ends.Parag Khanna, a senior public policy analyst in Singapore and author of “Connectography: Mapping the Future of Global Civilization,” summarized the political divide over transportation planning like this: “America is increasingly divided not between red states and blue states, but between connected hubs and disconnected backwaters.”But division that stymies transportation planning goes further. Government leaders have always been divided...

    Every time the nation appear divided, there’s always someone from Washington, whether it be a president, a senator, or a member of Congress that calls for bridging divides. We saw that with the assassination attempts on Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ) and Steve Scalise (R-LA) in 2011 and 2017 respectively, though everyone returned to their partisan corners within days or weeks. It’s the nature of politics these days. When it comes to Black Lives Matter and the Trump administration, it’s no shocker that the two sides vociferously disagree on everything. Should they meet? Well, according to the co-founder of Black Lives...

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    No matter how much the political elites would like it to be so, America (and in fact much of Europe) is no longer politically divided by race. Of course there are demographic trends, but these are not divisions; what is really causing the split is the vast chasm that is seen to exist between the Left of politics and the Right. Before we get too hung up in terminology, I use the terms Left and Right only in their more historical sense. There is a huge amount of crossover; but here I refer to the “Stated Political Divisions” of our...

    The groupthink in our public discourse is so pervasive it goes as unnoticed as the air. For example, let's say a bunch of young girls are blown up at a pop concert. You have to say something about it. But what? Sir Richard Leese, Leader of Manchester City Council, on what he called the "incident" (seriously) at Manchester Arena: We will not allow terrorists who seek to sow fear and division to achieve their aims. Likewise, Amber Rudd, the British Home Secretary, had no doubt about the intent of the attack: Its intention was to sow fear - its intention...

  • Charlie Daniels: America Isn’t Just Divided–It’s Fragmented to Pieces

    01/31/2017 5:50:46 AM PST · by rktman · 39 replies ^ | 1/31/2017 | Charlie Daniels
    There is a growing attitude of "everything we believe is right and everything you believe is wrong," and even when there is equity on both sides of an issue the animosity has gotten so pervasive that opposing views are rarely even considered by the other side. The common phrase is that "America is divided," but I beg to differ. America is actually fragmented into pieces racially, socially, politically, philosophically and fiscally, and every group that tries to put on a united face is actually made up of dissidents with their own personal ax to grind, ranging from the moderates to...

    Obama is about to speak. Message to Obama: Just shut up! Don't do ANYTHING you might regret later. Our hope is that you will be pursued until the end of your life for all of the damage you did to this country. Our wish is that every Executive Order you put out is revoked, the military leadership is restored, the Healthcare Act is repealed and muslims are made to know clearly that they are not welcome here, ever.

To Obama's side, there are knives with the words race, immigration, global warming, etc. The top caption over the cartoon should read, "Dividing America, one issue at a time."

    Coming several days after a series of other court rulings, the Supreme Court issued a ruling today enabling division by zero. Writing for the majority, Justice Anthony Kennedy declares that all government and commercial actions outlawing division by zero, or declaring division by zero to be undefined or in error, are unconstitutional under both the Due Process and Equal Protection clauses. The White House and many LGBTZ groups hailed the decision.

Obama will travel to Charleston for the funeral of Reverend Clementa Pinckney, pastor of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, who the president considered a friend and who was a well known leader in South Carolina, where he also served as a state senator. “Michelle and I know several members of Emanuel AME Church.
